Description of Workshop

A tsunamigenic landslide model benchmarking and validation workshop is organized on behalf of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) Mapping and Modeling Subcommittee (MMS). Funding to support some expenses for the workshop including limited invitational travel for selected individuals was provided through an NTHMP grant to the University of Delaware.

Following the template of earlier NTHMP/MMS model benchmarking workshop (Galveston, 2011; Portland, 2015), the expected outcomes of the workshop are to develop:

  • a set of community accepted benchmark tests for validating numerical models used for landslide tsunami generation and propagation in NTHMP inundation mapping work;
  • an extensive workshop documentation and a web-based repository for benchmark data, model results, and workshop documentation, results and conclusions.
